aurora, columbine, virginia tech and newtown, connecticut. names that have become iconic in america's bizarre and shameful epidemic of gun violence. we're here because we know that america is greater than those awful moments. we're here because we envision an america that's known as the nation that solves this terrible gun violence epidemic once and for all. we can do this. we can do this. they say friday's horrific mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school changed everything, and it has. it is a tipping point. reliably pro gun lobby senators have shifted position saying they can no longer bring themselves to oppose gun policies. republican commentator joe scarborough said sandy hook changed everything. president obama said, we can't tolerate this anymore, we must do better than this. so friday changed everything. for me, though, it was a shooting on the observation deck of oh the empire state building when my brother was shot. for others it was a school bus in chicago, or a parking lot in florida. for jim and sara brady, a day in 1981 changed everything, when jim stood behind t
are foreigners in a strange land. this is true as much of the recent past as it is of colonial america or 12th century venice. writing about the recent past is not easy, as i learned this time around. first, there are people you have to talk to. [laughter] and while i was blessed from beginning to end by having some fascinating people to talk to about joe kennedy including large numbers of kennedys, i much prefer working from written documents to listening to people talk and trying to figure out what's real, what's imagined, what they know, what they think they know because someone told them, what they think they know but they don't know at all. the other difficulty about writing about our recent past is that it's not always easy to establish one's distance from it. to construct the pastness of the past that is so close to us. and yet this is what historians have to do. our job is to complicate, to take apart our common sense view of the recent past, to interrogate what we think we know, to demiesfy, demythologize, to move beyond the cliches about winners and losers, saints and sinners, about
even if you say, well, i don't think gun control laws should be put into place in america. >> if i told you it was tough politics, would you be shocked? that that's the reason why. but in all fairness, i think that the political realities and the fact it is politically tough, despite what happened in newtown for a lot of politicians to do anything to anger the gun rights enthusiasts. and we're talking about, as you reported, a 4 million member organization, it's tough for them to do that. i think also, everybody is just trying to kind of work through what could be possible legislatively, and for those who are in politically perilous situations, there's no benefit in them jumping on a piece of legislation before they really take the time and see what they may or may not have to vote on. >> dana bash reporting live from washington. >>> if you were watching the nra's announcement on friday, you could not help but see this. >> the nra has blood on its hands. shame on the nra. ban assault weapons now. >> that was medea benjamin. she was the second protester to disrupt the meeting. she's co-d
